LJMU Professor goes global
28 June 2012
Professor Frank McDonough of the School of Humanities and Social Science is to offer expert commentary for a major new six part series called 'Nazi Secrets' which gives new insights and material from recently opened archives that shed new light on the inner workings of Hitler's evil Third Reich.
The series has been produced under the supervision of the leading German Third Reich expert Guido Knopp and is a co-production of the National Geographic Channel and ZDF, Germany's leading TV channel.
Professor McDonough will appear in two episodes of the series entitled 'Hitler’s Women' which will examine the Nazi dictators often bizarre relationships with the women in his life and 'Hitler’s Private Life' which examines his relationship with his family and his entourage.
The series will premiere on Monday 2 July on the National Geographic Channel, in 165 countries, with a world-wide audience reach of 380 million people. In the UK, the series opens at 9.00 pm on 2 July, with several repeat showings throughout the week.
Professor McDonough comments:
"I have appeared on television before many times, but the immense global reach of National Geographic means my research expertise will reach through this series a very wide and diverse international TV audience."
